"When The Queen Came To Town" - 60th Anniversary Documentary of Landmark Oz/NZ Tour

Thursday's Sydney newspaper always reviews the new film releases, and today there is a very nice review of the new documentary "When The Queen Came To Town".

Saying it is "dinky, but delightful", it commemorates the 1954 tour of Australia and New Zealand - now sixty years ago - by Her Majesty and Prince Phillip.

Some 130 locations were visited, and it is estimated about eighty percent of Australia's population saw the Queen in person.

Some people who did so are interviewed, and the footage of the masses flooding the streets is described as "never less than astonishing".

There is also a three-quarter page article about the documentary - which is opening in cinemas today.

Here are some details -

- in Sydney, four rooms of Government House were refurbished with a hand-made eleven piece suite of bedroom furniture, made from Australian butt maple

- what was the original stables for Government House were even then converted into the Conservatorium of Music, and each time Her Majesty passed by, the students were taken out of class to form an Honour Guard

- Her Majesty stayed in an hotel when in Lismore, with lilac walls and venetian blinds, and with food flown in from Europe
